Sadly today 11-5-2015 Zekie made his journey to the rainbow bridge. He is my cute boy angel. You will always be in my heart my sweet boy.
I can't write anymore I am so upset, sad & can't stop crying.
Wanted our friends to know and to thank you all for everything. Just too hard for me

Zeke is failing, it is day by day now

It is with much sadness that my Zeke is failing. His numbers for his kidneys have gone way back up. We have tried but he just isn't strong enough to pull through this.

He still eats, is peeing & slowly getting around to be with us.

His time with us is short, we are taking one day at a time, but in my heart I know we will be making the awful decision to let him go to be with my angel Tallulah and his buddy. They used to spend lots of time together. I know she will be there to greet him with love & angel hugs, butterfly kisses.
I am so broken that my sweet mellow lap boy will be leaving me soon.

Zeke is doing OK

Zeke is doing OK, he is eating with the help of his food stimulant pill, he gets 1/2 pill twice a day. It helps him eat without it I am not sure he would eat much. He is eating mostly dry, he has always loved dry, can not so much, but he does eat some.

He is thin and weak, but getting around, he loves walking around the house checking everything out, going into the pantry to get dry food even though I have his food in our walk in closet.

I had to change out all the litter boxes for lower edge boxes so he could get into them and not pee all over, I have now put wee wee pads under and around the boxes, he sometimes doesn't make it into the box or completely into the box.

He has to get 200ml of fluids everyday, my sweet boy becomes a not so sweet boy when it comes to the fluids. I have to hang on to him he tries to turn and push backwards to get away, so far we have managed to keep him in one place. He growls and meows the whole time, makes me sad to see him this way I tell him we love him and this is to help him feel better.

With having to get several medications I bought empty gel caps so I can grind up the pills to put in the caps and but the powder medication in them, I roll them in a little butter to get into his mouth and make them go down easier. He was fighting me and scratching me because he didn't want the pills in his mouth, this is so much easier now. He also gets liquid holistic Kidney herbs to help his kidneys.

He sleeps a lot, loves sleeping on me in my chair during the day or sleeping in one of their cat trees by the window.

So far he is doing good, hanging in there, next week we take him to the vet to check his kidney numbers, praying they came down more and he continues to be stable. He isn't out of the woods, things can change but for now my sweet Zeke is here and I know he wants to be with us, not ready to leave us.

Of course I am worried about him, don't like to leave him for long so we are staying home, only going out if we need to.

On top of everything we have been going through, Sunday evening I noticed Kody was acting like he did when he was getting blocked, so Monday I called our vet as Xena had her appointment for her Kidney blood work, to see if we could bring in Kody. Sure enough he was getting blocked, luckily we got him in time, he got fluids, a shot that has made him high since Monday, he is also getting medication to relax his muscles so he can pee and herbal medication for his kidneys.

Great news is Xena's kidney numbers came down, she is doing great and has even gained weight.

I will do diary entries for Kody and Xena as well.

It has been a hard week for me, warn out from all the sick kitties and Mia, cleaning up after them, giving medication and continually watching over them to make sure they are all OK. Know that we thank you all for your support and for caring about us. I will update when I can, just a busy stressful time right now with the not knowing what each day will bring to us all.

Love and hugs to you all
Peggy and Kitties

 

Zeke gets to come home finally

Sorry I haven't given you an update on my Zeke. I haven't been feeling well, new medication making me nausea & tired.

Last Thursday we got Zeke's new numbers for his kidneys. They came down, but both me & our vet felt he needed the IV fluids a little longer to see if we could get them down more as they were still not down enough. So he stayed longer, my poor boy.
He is OK, but not eating much, even with food stimulant it is a concern.

We have visited him, we can tell he feels better but wants to come home. It always breaks my heart to leave him.

After we visited him last Monday I got a call from the vet office. Come to find out Zeke got scared & spooked when one of the techs that is taking of him tried to get him out of his cage. He tried to get back into his cage, so scared he bit the tech. So out of character for Zeke he is so sweet & mellow i have never heard him hiss or growl, he is the one that gets along with everyone. The tech had to go to urgent care and we all know what happens, they had to report Zeke. We haven't heard from the animal control so far, if they do not sure what will happen, vet assured me he would just be quarantined for 14 days. He never goes out so that isn't an issue, they may force me to get Zeke his rabies shot. I don't believe compromised cats with health issues should be getting shorts, it only makes them sick. Zeke is sick enough and we have no idea how long we will have him here with us.

So this morning they will do his bloodwork, wean him off the IV fluids today and we can pick him up around 5. I can't wait to have him home with us, sure he will be happy too.

He will be on antibiotics, phosphorus binders, pepcid & food stimulant, he is getting 1/4 tablet 2 times a day, I need to see if I can give him half tablet 2 times a day because he still isn't eating much.

Zeke still needs your purrs & prayers

Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for all your prayers for my baby & for being here, it has been so hard on us all, especially Zeke.

Zeke is still at the vet, they took his blood late afternoon, will get results tomorrow sometime. Depending on the numbers he may or may not get to come home.
He is doing better, still not eating much, but he is eating. He is peeing a lot and he is more active, not hiding as much as he was.
It has been hard not being there with him, wish we lived closer so I could visit him everyday. If he can't come home tomorrow we will go visit.
I sure miss my Zekie boy, pray he will get to come home and will do good with getting his fluids everyday & be here for a long time.
I will update when we know anything

 

We got to visit Zeke today

So excited we got to see our baby boy today. He looked so scared when they brought him in to the room. He looked good, better than when we left him on Saturday.
He purred and wanted me to give him scritches & rubs.
He used the leather bench for his scratcher, guess he misses getting to do his nails.
He is eating a little good sign.
Gave my sweet boy lots of hugs & kisses, how I miss my Zekie, house is not the same without him.
It was hard to give him back and leave him there, but I know he is in good hands, all your purrs & prayers are helping.

We won't know how he is dong until Wednesday when they get bloodwork results. He may or may not be able to come home.
Every day he is doing good, he is here is a blessing, it is up to him & God. I know after seeing today he wants to get better and come home again.
Will update again

 

Update on Zeke

Our vet just called me she said Zeke is doing good, but is nervous because dogs are barking. That was my concern leaving him there, they have a boarding facility. The techs there are checking on Zeke during the night when the vet isn't there.

He is peeing a lot which is great that is what we want. He is eating hooray, thank goodness I took food I knew he would eat with us yesterday and of course one of his blankets I rubbed it on me to get my smell on it to help him feel better.

She thinks if we come up tomorrow to spend time with him will help him, so now I have to convince my husband to let me go see my sweet Zeke.

I didn't sleep well last night worrying about Zeke he is so sensitive.

Thank you all for your purrs & prayers they certainly are helping him. He is still not out of the woods and it is all up to him & how his kidneys do. He is in God's hands, I pray for him to come through this so we can have our boy with us for a long time.
I will give an update tomorrow.

Zeke is at the vet, not good

The vet called,Zeke's numbers did not come down one actually went up. So he is now at the vet getting VI fluids for 3 or 4 days. We are giving him a 2nd chance, but it doesn't look good. I just pray this will help him and he will be here for more time.

I have been crying since I got the call. We decided on the vet instead of ER cost less especially if he doesn't pull through. I already miss my boy and I am sick to my stomach with fear and sadness.
Please keep Zeke in your prayers
Thanks you for your prayers, we both need them. Trying to do this in car we are on our way home now

 

Zeke's vet appt.

We took Zeke to the vet yesterday, he Meowed all the way 45 mins. he was not happy at all.

I took in the urine sample, he's lost 6ozs., she looked into his mouth she had magnifying glasses on to make sure she got a good look, she smelled his breath as well. She said his mouth is bad but she has seen worse. She still thinks he isn't eating because of his kidneys. She felt it was best to get him on antibiotics to help him just in case he does have an infection. They took blood so they can check his kidney numbers, pray they are coming done, also to make sure nothing else is going on. Now we wait, she's suppose to call today, we will give you the update later.

He still Meowed on the way home, just as we got closer his meows were frantic I knew he needed to pee, luckily I have wee wee pads in his carrier, we didn't get home in time. My poor boy gets so upset when that happens.

I am not giving up, I keep praying he will turn around and feel better, I keep having the same feeling of dread like I did when Tallulah was so sick.

This is very hard on us both, he now looks at me like I am going to hurt him because I am the one giving him his medication, he hates getting the fluids as well, he lays on his side, then starts pushing backwards, I have to hold on to the needle and lean over him so he can't get away. Not sure how long we can keep doing this to him!

He actually slept with me for a while last night, he hasn't done that in some time.

He is up now sitting at the window he loves sitting at the window, he sits on his heating pad, my sweet sweet boy

Give you update later, purrs & prayers for my Zekie

 

Zeke is still not doing well

Zeke is still not doing that good, I started giving him food stimulant he is eating a little more, I have given to him once a day, but now I think I need to do it twice a day like I am doing with the pepcid.

He misses the box when he pees so wee wee pads all over, not his fault I feel so bad for him.

I called the vet yesterday asked if I could bring him in earlier than next week and is they could have the vet call me. He is very thin

My gut is telling me his teeth and mouth have gotten really bad with his kidney failure. I wanted to see if she could concentrate on his mouth, give him antibiotics as well as blood work to see if his kidney numbers are down or not. She thinks it is his kidneys that are making him not want to eat and she will check to see if he has ulcers in his mouth.

Right now I just don't know if my boy has it in him to pull through this, I pray that he does otherwise I may have to made the dreaded decision.....but know I am not giving up on him he could pull through this.

Vet said we could go ahead if we really want and have his teeth done, she didn't think anything would happen but we will see, not rushing into anything now.

My poor sweet mellow Zeke is just now himself I miss that boy, I am very concern about him and I cry a lot because I know my boy and this is hard on him.

Just wanted all of you know how he is doing, will update you after we go to the vet tomorrow and when we get the results of his blood work...

Thank you all that have been here and have prayed for him. Keep praying for Zeke he needs the help and a miracle .

Zeke and Peggy
